I was pretty pleased with the way this card turned out. The bow really finished it well. (Thank you Becca Feeken and her Bow Maker!)
Kanban Paper is wonderfully thick cardstock - rich and elegant.
There are two sets of diecuts available on the site, Afternoon Cuppa and Coffee Shop Delights and I chose Afternoon Cuppa for this card. Kanban has absolutely wonderful browns that coordinate so beautifully.
I used a few different sheets of Kanban paper, besides the diecuts. And I went for the combination of Spellbinders Labels 20 and Floral Ovals that I used with some success recently. I also got to add in the Romantic Rectangles, too! I highly recommend adding wax paper to your sandwich when diecutting intricate dies. I used my awl quite a lot to poke out the little bitties.
I pulled the pink into the Label 20 diecut by blending the Distress Inks listed below with the Foam Blending Tool. If you use at least two colours (one after the other, not at the same time!) you get more depth. You can click on the images below to see them a bit larger.
This bow is the double-tailed bow - directions are on the DVD that comes with the Becca Bow Maker. Nice, huh?
